Product Description

Product Description

Japanese only SHM-CD (Super High Material CD - playable on all CD players) pressing. Universal. 2008.


The highlight of this MTV gig is the cover of the Stones' "2,000 Man," which Kiss covered on Dynasty. Though the four original members play together on only two tunes ("2,000 Man" and the first real acoustic guitar version of their hit "Beth"), the two tracks ("Rock and Roll All Nite" and "Nothin' to Lose") on which they're joined by current members--drummer Eric Singer and guitarist Bruce Kulick--are also magical. The rest of the album, featuring only the current lineup, has some great moments when Kiss's songwriting prowess really shines through. Songs like "Comin' Home," "Sure Know Something," "See You Tonight," and "Goin' Blind" sound amazing in the acoustic format. However, things get a little miserable when they pull out two overwrought ballads, "I Still Love You" and "Every Time I Look at You," toward the end of the 15-song CD. --Adem Tepedelen

If you ever needed proof that Kiss indeed can play their instruments, or that Kiss can write great songs, this is it. Break the song down acoustically, strip the band down to the essence and you can't hide behind distortion. Kiss have the goods.

For Kiss fans this album is pure nirvana. Old classics never or rarely played live before, pulled out of the closet ("See You Tonite", "A World Without Heroes". Newer songs such as "Every Time I Look At You" played live for the first time. All kinds of songs given new life ("Domino"). And three, yes three, songs from Hotter Than Hell (including the Japanese bonus track "Got To Choose")! Proof that Hotter Than Hell was a great album choked by its own sound.

And of course, you get the reunion. Better than the reunion was Kiss playing as a six piece for the first and only time ever. This version of "Nothing To Lose" (spotlighting a lead vocal by Eric Singer for the first time) is better than any other I've ever heard.

Hearing is believing. Hear this, doubters: Kiss is a serious rock band, and this album is the proof. Not too serious to have fun though, and you will have fun listening to MTV Unplugged by Kiss.

By T. Skylar TOP 100 REVIEWER on Sept. 29 2007

In the early 1990s the "MTV Unplugged" show was a complete success with bands like Nirvana,performances were bands would play their songs acouticly much to the delight of fans.KISS were certainly aware of the Unplugged shows as in 1995 they had their own unplugged show wich was released as "KISS MTV Unplugged" in 1996 both as an album and a concert movie.The band would play rarely performed live songs on the album such as "Coming Home" and "Plaster Caster".

Here KISS are not playing not their classic songs,but their rare songs.The ones they never play at concerts like "Sure Know Something","Going Blind" and "Do You Love Me?".The songs sound great in their acoustic form and here they are played the way they were written,on acoustic guitars.The only song that is not a rarity on here is the well overplayed "Rock`N`Roll All Nite",wich still sounds really good.

This show is basicaly KISS just playing their song in an acoustic version with no explosion,makeup or pyrotechnics at all,just guys with guitars playing songs,at simplest as it gets.Its definatly a KISS show at its greatest but the music is really good and fans thanks to the release of this album know what KISS sounds like unplugged.

Its no secret that an unplugged show for a famous band is a great recipe for succes.It worked for Nirvana,KISS and many others and fans will always pay for it.To the many bands out there who have yet to release an acoustic album:why not?Fans will be happy about it and its garenteed succes,that is if you can play the songs correctly!

Its safe to say that had the "MTV Unplugged" concert never happened,the 1996 reunion of the original members with Ace Frehley and Peter Criss wouldn`t have seen the day.

There are a lot of rock bands out there and eager to prove how good their crafts are when it comes to musical acrobatics with the aid of technology-aided gadgets. During the heavy metal hair band days, a not-so-great musician can make their music a work of art if you watch them play on their music videos. Fast hands and hell-raising voices and exhibitions. But their musical skills were not tested until they play music using raw instruments and come up with very crisp and raw sounds. Thanks to MTV's creative concept - MTV Unplugged which gave real musicians prove to their fans how good they are. Kiss' Unplugged album have just proven their great skills. Only few people out there have the guts to go hard-rockin' using acoustic instruments. And to name a few, Billy Idol, Bryan Adams, Tesla, Eric Clapton & Sting. Am looking forward for Van Halen, Aerosmith, Poison, Warrant, Deep Purple, Journey & Pink Floyd to go UNPLUGGED!!! I dare you guys 'coz there are millions of fans out there to get your acoustic album if you will think of having one. TO KISS, YOU GUYS ARE A FAB!!!

During the 1990's, it seemed every band was releasing an MTV Unplugged album. So Kiss, savvy businessmen that they were, decided to release their version with a unique twist. Kiss Unplugged included the reunion of the original lineup of Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss. This album would lead to the cash cow that became the return of the original Kiss in full makeup that were worldwide superstars from 1974-1979.
However, what this album should be best known is for the recorded proof of Simmons and Stanley's underrated songwriting abilities and the strong musicianship of the 1995 or "new" version of Kiss that included guitarist Bruce Kulick and drummer Eric Singer. Like Eric Clapton and Neil Young's albums from the MTV Unplugged series, Kiss' version is largely comprised of lesser known album tracks or "deep cuts", several of which the band hadn't performed in many years. The excellent tracks "Comin' Home" and "Goin' Blind" are salvaged from the great but muddy sounding Hotter Than Hell album and show how innovative Simmons' playing was in the early years. "See You Tonight" from Simmons' solo album is a true surprise and blows the original away. Stanley's voice is in fine form throughout, especially on the ballads "I Still Love You" and "Every Time I Look At You." Eric Singer's drumming is very strong here, throwing in quick fills on many of the tracks but never overplaying. Bruce Kulick's playing on the album is also great, particularly on the hard rocker "Domino", the somber "A World Without Heroes", and the aforementioned "Goin' Blind.
